With the result, Colorado reached 12 points, guaranteeing the first position of Group E of the continental competition.
At eight minutes, the Brazilian team opened the scoring with Rodrigo Dourado, with a header, after a corner kick by De Pena. But two minutes later the Ecuadorians evened everything out with Caicedo, who headed in after a cross by Mauro da Luz.
Even looking for more victory, Internacional only managed to get back in front in the second half. At three minutes Taison crossed, the ball passed Bruno Mendez and Dourado did not forgive. But tranquility only came in the 20th minute, when Edenilson sent it to the opponent’s area and Orlin Quiñónez scored against it.
At 30 minutes, the duo Taison and Dourado returned to action, with shirt seven sending the steering wheel to score with a header. Seven minutes later, Estevão had time to leave his.
